Most surprised to find such a very well renovated hotel in this rather remote, yet beautiful, area of Scotland. Excellent rooms and facilities, all well thought out with comfortable bed, good shower and everything laid out perfectly. Reception service good and evening meal of a good standard. Breakfast was however disappointing especially cooked which was minimalist and served in a... More

We’ve just enjoyed our second stay at the Royal, and both times we’ve been extremely happy. We stayed in a superior room on the first floor, which was very spacious and comfortable, with an added guest bed for our 6 year old. The décor is fresh and tasteful, the super king bed is super comfortable, and the bed linens, pillows,... More

We only visited for morning coffee and then for an afternoon snack, but staff are so helpful and friendly. Many years since we stayed there but the upgrade has made it a 5 star in my opinion. hope to go back and stay to find out! Seems like local folks go there for coffee regularly.

I like the fact this hotel has a shuttle service to the airport and its sister hotel. The views from the hotel are stunning over Campbeltown loch, my room had two windows so I could take my pick. The room was very clean with a modern twist of Scottish Tweeds theme and Victorian style street scenes of the local area,... More

We stayed for the weekend in the Royal Hotel Campbeltown. It was a last minute booking because it was my wife's Bday and we wanted somewhere different. We weren't disappointed .... The hotel is scrupulously clean. The decor fresh and modern. The facilities new and all worked really well. Our bedroom was number 14 and had a good view of... More

We booked this very last minute for a stay in Campbeltown and were pleasantly surprised. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and were very helpful throughout our stay. Our room (no. 11) was great - lots of space, view of the harbour, fantastic high ceiling, a large comfortable bed and great interior decoration. The food for breakfast was... More

We visited Springbank distillery and stayed in this hotel for one night. Everything was great. The room was nicely decorated and spacious, with very comfortable bed and large bathroom. We also had dinner in the hotel and the food was first class. The staff seemed to be somewhat stressed with the amount of guests (there was a Springbank distillery open... More

Spent three nights at the Royal. Top marks for location, breakfast, Black Sheep pub, and room. A bit lower marks for mushy mattress (may just be me) and inconsistent staff helpfulness (seemed to matter who was at the front desk). The Royal is an historic building across from the scenic docks. The history of the region oozes throughout, thanks in... More

We had one of the hotel's Superior Rooms at a superior price due to the fact that we dropped in last minute and there was one room left. Ours was Room 14 overlooking the harbour. The quality of the room was everything you could hope for. Nothing of an inferior quality in the room. The meals we ordered in the... More
